LETTER: Losing your cool over heating costs

(Black Press Media file photo)

I heat my house with natural gas and have no other gas appliances.

I track and record my Fortis bills and this year’s taxes (federal, provincial, municipal) comprised 27.3% of the total cost, with the B.C. carbon tax 45% more than the cost of the gas itself and the federal government charging GST on that carbon tax.

All three levels of government keep singing the affordability song all the while raising our taxes and fees. Pretty soon we’ll all be broke.
